Attitude Derriére


Recommended Posts

I know when the leg is derriere and in an arabesque ling (i.e straight leg) it has to be in line with the shoulder, so as not to be under or over crossed, but when attitude is taken at the back, is it the toes or the knee that should still be in line with the shoulder? Thank you!

The knee! If it was the toe then the leg would be way out of line to the side. Stand facing square to the mirror and do an attitude. You should see the foot over on the standing side of the body, while the knee is actually hidden by the shoulder, just like the leg in arabesque at 90% would be hidden.
